Cadaster refers to a system involving comprehensive geometric data on real estate across a country along with full details of properties, owners and respective rights. It can provide a dynamic administration of real estate datasets so that tasks are carried out at maximum efficiency and quality. From the legal point of view, a cadaster survey seeks to specify 4 essential characteristics concerning immovable property, including owner, ownership transfer practices, geographic location, dimensions (area) based on primary and secondary registration numbers, quality and quantity of properties. By determining these parameters and registering them in single-sheet cadastral deeds as well as an online database, a great step can be taken to mitigate the rate of violations and crimes related to property registration, and subsequently reduce the lawsuits. Nowadays, it is critical to implement a land and real estate registration system in any country, since it can facilitate the sustainable development of the central government, provide security of tenure and property ownership rights, facilitate investment in the real estate market and the transactions, guarantee a transparent, efficient property evaluation and ultimately set the groundwork for planning and utilizing lands and achieving sustainable development. It is crucial to emphasize the fact that the Iranian economic and industrial development has posed numerous new obstacles against authorities in charge of the cadaster survey and registration of land ownership, since they have to take caution about the potential demand and dynamism of the cadaster expansion in the future. As a result, the cadaster expansion should be constantly monitored to ensure its compliance and support for adopting appropriate decisions, optimally managing the lands, minimizing the detrimental consequences of environmental changes and their consistency with the current and upcoming requirements. The continuous development of cadaster systems and their capability to cooperate with other national databases is vital for ensuring all needs are met in various economic sectors and providing reliable data update on real estate.
